Dartmouth vs Rutgers...Is an Ivy Education worth $120,000?
I am now choosing between Penn/Dartmouth (would honestly be happy to go to either school) and Rutgers, the state college of New Jersey. Rutgers is offering me a full ride whereas Dartmouth and Penn are asking for 30,000 per year.
My family is middle class, maybe upper middle class-combined annual income of around 120,000.
I want to enter finance, Wall Street, etc. and I was wondering if spending the 30,000 per year for an Ivy was worth it. Many people have told me an ivy offers invaluable opportunities to network, contact big companies, etc.
So, here's what it boils down to:
1) Should I do Rutgers undergrad instead of Penn/Dartmouth and
2) If I do an Ivy, should I choose Penn CAS or Dartmouth
THANKS a ton, guys!
